Love the colors in this soap. I was playing around with a new technique that kind of sort of did what I was going for. I’m going to play with it some more, but overall I think it’s fun and the colors work well together. As you can see from the suppliers description this is quite a complex scent, but it really does smell good!
It has fresh orange and crisp aldehyde which lead to a warm blend of woods and musk to create this sensual fragrance. Hints of rose are balanced with patchouli, cedar wood and sandalwood for warmth. A highly textured blend of musk notes is sweetened with hints of vanilla.

Lavender Vanilla…another vanilla. I’ve had such a good response with this scent in my wax melts that I decided to make it in soap. I knew it would discolor and tried to use that to my advantage in the design. And again with those darn vanilla beans. There wasn’t a single picture I was happy with how they looked in. *sigh*
It is a relaxing and tranquil scent that is also unique and memorable. A well-rounded combination of fresh lavender, fresh vanilla beans, with orange zests and patchouli.

Coffee soap has been on my to do list for like a year. I finally got around to doing it. It’s a simple soap with coffee grounds for an exfoliant. Smells like coffee (not my favorite scent but I know many will love it).
So, I’m only slightly OCD or obsessive or whatever word we want to use to describe the fact that I individually places each coffee bean in this picture trying to get the groupings to look like they’d just perfectly and randomly fallen into place! 😀

The next soap on my list was Winder Garden (but I call it Winter Wonderland). I wanted to create a winter scene of pine trees. As you can see my background was too busy (too much blue) and so the stamped green trees get lost. It’s unfortunate, because I really like this design otherwise. If I ever do it again I know better.
This fragrance begins with top notes of fresh lime and menthol; middle notes of Douglas fir and lavender; with full-body base notes of eucalyptus and pine.

This soap is nothing like what I planned. I accidentally used the color theme I was going to do for this soap with my Plum Spice soap and I didn’t want to use the same colors. So I randomly decided on two purples swirled with white as two separate layers. Sometimes it is good when plans go awry. I really liked what I ended up with. The redesign colors actually are really nice and work well for this scent.
I made Bramble Berry’s Cranberry Fig years ago (like 3-4 years…). I decided to come back to it this year because I’ve always liked its tartness.
Is an excellent compromise between the tart bit or Cranberries and the sweet, mild allure of Fig.
